    Aquacultured Green Star Polyps Coral - 1 Inch

    Our green star polyps are encrusting on a frag chip, Briareum sp., are a one of the easiest and fastest growing corals to keep. You get a colored matt of 1-1.25 inches. Please note that these corals are very easy to keep but frequently take a week or more to open after shipping. This is normal.

    Briareum corals are gorgonians in the family Briareidae. They are commonly found in many reef zones including lagoons and fore-reef slopes. Although they are tolerant of a variety of lighting conditions, they do best in moderate water flow and moderate to high intensity lighting, like you might find on a reef flat on on an upward back reef slope. 

    Green star polyps are hardy and fast growing.  They can quickly encrust over neighbors, so give them plenty of space in your aquarium. You should blow sediment from its mat periodically to keep it free from algal accumulation.  You do not need to directly feed star polyps, as they rely on photosynthesis via their zooxanthellae.
